b-the change: THIS SATURDAY, march for rights for all in D.C.
We received the following email this morning and thought you should know about it:
This Saturday, October 2, thousands of Latinos will gather at 10:00AM in front of the U.S. Capitol to march on Constitution Ave. towards the Lincoln Memorial to join the One Nation Working Together Movement.
The march seeks good jobs, economic justice, quality education and justice for all, including immigrant rights.
“The reality is that we cannot work by ourselves if we want to stop the national wave of deportations of hard working immigrants and enforcement-only programs such as 287g,” stated Jaime Contreras, Director and District Chair for SEIU Local 32BJ. “The Latino community will gather this Saturday at 10am to join our brothers and sister who are fighting like us for a country that respects the human and civil rights of all.”
One Nation Working Together is a rapidly growing movement across the United States representing people of all backgrounds, hues and faiths. More than 170 human and civil rights organizations, environmental, labor, peace, youth and faith-based organizations will join with the Latino community as one to reclaim the true moral values of our country.
“On Oct. 2 at 10am, we will demonstrate that we are not giving up to reach our DREAM and to stop the hatred towards our community,” stated Erika Andiola from the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition, who is scheduled to speak at the rally.
If you’re in D.C., b-the change and march for rights!
